Sony 15sf monitor with Pink Picture

I have a Sony Monitor that all of a sudden has a picture with a slight pink tint to it. Tried hitting the reset button and fooled with all the controls but it's still pink! Has my monitor failed me?

It rally all depends so you will have to make some decisions - bexuase I don't know that particular model.

OK: Yes your monitor is failing you !! BUT it is fixable.

Have you degaused you monitor - there maybe a degause button (sometimes a magnet with a line through it)

look at you cable that plucgs into your PC - are any pins lose ? is or has the cable been bent and stressed ?

After than you can get it repaired, for the sounds of it it should be an easy fix.  You just need to find a monitor repairer - your local computer store may know one - but don't let them talk you into buying a new one.  This is only a minor problem.  It is either a cable problem (it isn't recieving the "full signal",laser gun problem - a service man needs to re-align th e"guns" or magnetic interferance (if it is purpleish it is magnetic - if you have speakers, try moving them away from the monitor.

I hope this helps
i used have the same monitor as u, and it turns a slight pink tinge when u press or another shade of white you could say when you change the temperature that the thing runs at. i have no idea what this is called, but the button is located in the front, and when you press it you get a menu on teh screen saying something like 900K (which i presume is kelvins) and some other settings. try putting it to the defult setting (i think900K) or choose your own temperature
